Warlord of Kor was originally published in 1963 as half of an Ace Double, selected by legendary editor Donald A. Wollheim. It is an interplanetary adventure, as humans probe the mysteries of the planet Hirlaj and the few remaining aliens who live there.
Terry Carr never really shone as a writer, though he did write some remarkably thoughtful stories. However, his talents as an editor and anthologist were important and undeniable, and he brought many good writers and authors into science fiction and fantasy. His first couple of novels, of which Warlord of Kor was one, did not have their copyright renewed by Mr. Carr on purpose, one understands. So enjoy the blood and thunder, but don’t think it’s representative of his work! (Summary by suburbanbanshee)

Great thoughtful sci-fi
Despite lukewarm description of this work in the librivox.org catalog, it's a very fine piece of mid-20th century sci-fi, and the reading is first-rate. Highly recommended.

The readers of this story do a very nice job of playing the characters, I hope they team up again. I enjoyed listening to it better than reading it.
